UK-based distributor Dogwoof has closed a deal with A&E IndieFilms to acquire world rights to actor Mike Myers’ directorial debut Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon.

The film follows the career of manager and producer Shep Gordon, who has handled artists such as Alice Cooper, Blondie, Anne Murray and star chef Emil Lagasse. Gordon met Myers in the 90s and they have remained close friends.

Dogwoof, which will release the film theatrically in the UK, will debut the film in Europe at Berlin’s European Film Market. After a premiere at SXSW, distributor Radius-TWC will release Supermensch theatrically in the U.S. this summer.

Supermensch is an irresistible story of a true legend, and entrepreneur and business man who created the rules for entertainment management, but most importantly, this is a film with so much soul,” said Dogwoof co-founder and CEO Anna Godas in a statement.
